At the min my headaches are so bad it feels like a burning sensation on my head mixed with the tension headache at the sides n behind the ears

I posted the other day about my tension headache been a bad one that was affecting the back of my head

Do ppl get a tension headache before bed coz when I take my amytriptaline sometimes it makes the headache worse

So I'm wondering if I could be suffering from cluster headaches wich involves the burning sensation xx

It's from the minute I wake up n till I eventually fall to sleep

No eye pressure I went to a TMJ specialist yesterday and he examine me and when he touched inside my cheeks I jumped in pain. It's called mayofascial nerves/ muscles doing this and going up to my head :(

Lol welllllll I guess it’s not as bad as it was but I always feel something . I had a nerve block done last Thursday so maybe it’s helping the head. evenings seem worse today is ok head day but I swear now I feel like burning feeling on my legs and back I’m not imagining it for sure.

Reply

Cymbalata is for anxiety/ depression but they chose this one cause it also helps with nerve pain
